Amazing place to spend a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Princess Suite at Glitter Bay was a wonderful home for our family for our week's vacation. A smooth arrival (airport pick-up was arranged) and a warm welcome (by the site's property manager) allowed us to quickly get oriented and start our holiday. The suite itself is beautifully decorated and finished with a high-end kitchen and bathrooms. The outdoor eating and lounge areas were our favourite part of the suite - it doesn't get much better than dining while overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

Bente checked in often to ensure that we were enjoying our stay and the suite's housekeeper was lovely and kept our apartment spotless!

We had four adults and two children in the suite and it never felt crowded - plenty of space for everyone.

The Glitter Bay complex itself is showing its age slightly, but is still a wonderful place to stay. It is very quiet and you never have trouble finding a chair to lounge by the pool or on the beach. The concierge is very helpful and the on-site restaurant / bar is the perfect spot for lunch. There are fabulous restaurants close by for dinner.

I would highly recommend a stay at the Princess Suite at Glitter Bay - we will almost certainly be back!

The best place to stay in Barbados

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying in the Princess Suite, and we can't recommend it highly enough. The apartment is elegant, beautiful, and optimally set up. From lovely candellight dinners on the balcony, to waking up to a view (from bed) of the sparkling Caribbean (we even watched this year's lunar eclipse from bed), the experience is incredible. Our two daughters love the canopy beds in their room, and also love sitting out on the balcony in the mornings as the sun rises. The community is very friendly--the children can play together while the parents relax by the pool or on the beach. We can't recommend it enough and are devastated that it's already booked for our Easter holiday next year!

Our stay in the Princess Suite in the Glitterbay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a couple of years at the same place at the Glitterbay, St James, Barbados. Why are we coming back year after year? Because we love the island....the beach at the Glitterbay is one of the most beautiful ones, white sand, and beautiful aqua blue water. The staff is friendly, the property is clean and updated, beautiful view ....gorgeous tropical garden and almost on the beach...walk a couple of steps in your bathing suit and you are there. We have never liked to go off the resort because everything you need is there. A perfect day: We walk for breakfast to the Fairmont, Royal Pavilion hotel and enjoy the breakfast buffet...lay down, swim, and walk along the beach.....for lunch we stay at the Glitterbay and get served at our beach chairs under the umbrella in the shade, in the afternoon we nap, walk, swim and drink a pina-colada. We also play some paddle ball or surf, water ski, go sailing......we see the sunset from the terrace at the Princess suite...do some emailing (high speed wifi available) we take a shower and rest a little before we walk along the beach again.....10 minutes walk, and then you are at to the "Lone star" restaurant..... where you can watch the turtles coming ashore during an excellent diner. Other days we cook ourselves, order a pizza, get room service at the Fairmont hotel (where they know us by now and greet us like guests!)

In short...you like the best vacation of your dreams....the privacy of a condo, enough space and a pleasant staff...grab it all and enjoy the island in the sun.....steel band music, some reggae.....even that you find at night during dinner. You can make it as expensive as you want and go for one night to the Cliff....or Chin Cin....go to Sandy Lane restaurants......or you balance it out and take your loved ones to Zacchios....and wow.....the hamburger at the Royal Pavilion is the best....After 2 weeks in this paradise...there is only one negative point: You don't want to return home! That's why we go back..year after year....to be clear.....more than 11 years in a row we returned...the Emerald (West) coast of Barbados...that's where you like to be!

Fabulous apartment and holiday

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start......what a fantastic Apartment this is, every need has been catered for and the style of each room is superb. I was particularly taken with the Terry O'Neil prints that hung everywhere. The photographs were very accurate but seeing is believing and we weren't let down. All the three bedrooms look out over the swimming pool, gardens and beach area and each has it's own balcony with comfortable seating provided.

We were met at the airport and brought to Glitter Bay to be greeted by Julie who shown us around.....there was lots of 'wow's'. The dining table was laid out beautifully and our housekeeper, Cerele had prepared a lovely dinner for us, she had also filled the fridge and cupboard with essential items.....these small things made a huge impression. Duncan brought our hire car and filled out all the necessary paperwork....our holiday had begun!

Glitter Bay is very well maintained, the staff are all very friendly and nothing is too much trouble, the beach area is also well maintained and sun beds and towels are provided. We had a hire car and felt it was a necessity but the local buses pick up and drop off outside the resort....for 2 Bajan Dollars you can get anywhere on the Island but hold on tight as they drive quite fast. Driving is easy as Bajans drive on the left as in England and we found the other drivers to be very curtious. We took American Dollars which are accepted everywhere but next time we will take Bajan Dollars.....it's just easier.

Eating out is excellant....there are lots of great restaurants within easy reach of Glitter Bay..... LoneStar, Tides, The Beach House to name but a few.

The men in our party played golf.....they played The Royal Westmoreland, Sandy Bay and Apes Hill and they thoroughly enjoyed it (we had to hear all about their games over dinner)

The Reggae Festival was on whilst we were there and we went to Kensington Oval to Vintage Reggae Night and on Sunday we went to Reggae on the Hill, what a great time we had, the Locals certainly know how to party. Another must is Friday Evenings at Oisins......brilliant atmosphere.

I have to say a few words about out housekeeper, Cerele, she was the best. She looked after our every whim and was always so cheerful, she made our holiday so relaxing...a truly lovely lady.

This holiday will be among our best and a return is a definate......Barbados is a great Island filled with friendly people, a great destination.

Wonderful stay at 306 Glitter bay

  • 5 of 5

Apt 306 at Glitter Bay really is one of the best apartments at Glitter Bay. The whole apartment has been beautifully decorated with three large bedrooms, bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. The view from the terrace off the master bedroom is stunning.

Traveling with three young children we were anxious that all would go smoothly and Bente did a great job organising the airport pick-up, a cot and high-chair for the baby and a welcome meal in the oven from Cerele the very friendly and helpful Housekeeper.

If you enjoy the beach you will struggle to find better than the beach here and our children (ages 9mth, 3yrs and 5yrs) all had a lot of fun in the pool. There is beach bar for lunchtime snacks and drinks. The grounds and pool are not kept quite up to the standard when this was a hotel, but are adequate and the apartment and setting more than makes up for this.

We very much hope to return next year. Thanks Bente.

Great Stay at Glitter Bay!

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse was everything we expected. Plenty of room, beautiful furnishings, and wonderful staff. The outdoor patios are great and make a lovely setting for dinner off the main living room. The owner was great to work with, and we would definately return.

The resort was quiet while we were there since Europe's summer break had not started just yet. A great surprise was the snorkeling offshore. Just make sure to take buoys with you- so the boats can see you. All in all, we had a wonderful time and loved Barbados. We hope to be back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful Penthouse with us!
